I got my COVID-19 jab invite today

This is correct and I know quite a few who have had the jab and all are still waiting to come out to play.
Probably waiting until nearly everyone has had it.

Even though Hancock says that the vaccine might not work against a different varient..🙄

Even though astrazeneca say:

AstraZeneca has confirmed 100% protection against severe disease, hospitalization and death in their primary analysis of Phase III trials more than 22 days after the first dose. The trials were done in the UK, Brazil AND South Africa.

You know Hancock, where the south Africa variant is much more prevalent? The one that he keeps banging on about ...saying that the vaccine might not work..shameless human being

I think its just their disclaimer really.
Be prepared - just in case.

And I bet we are still avoiding each other, and covering our dirty mushes up with a piece of cloth.

Where's the end game here, if the vaccine is not it?

Well, guys and dolls I decided to take up their offer and make an appointment but after following their text link here's the message I got:

"There aren't any appointments available at the moment but more will become available soon.

Please do not call your practice to ask about appointments as they cannot handle large volumes of calls at the moment, and will not be able to book your slot as no appointments are currently available.

Instead, please check your link every day, and you will be able to book your vaccine the moment a booking slot becomes available."

NHS.

I made sure that the website link was genuine first and it is because the main part is nhs.uk.
So, getting the COVID-19 vaccine isn't plain sailing right now even when you get an invite :headscratch:

If this is the case @thingamajig then it might be the same for the booster?
Great system in place there then :headscratch:
